only 43% of women have access to vocational training, compared to 57% of men.
This limits their ability to acquire the skills necessary for high-demand occupations and pursue careers in non-traditional fields. This lack of access to training and job opportunities contributes to the high rates of female unemployment and economic inequality in the region.
